As many of you know, I have long since wanted to make a denim quilt. Old blue jeans were collected and saved, squares were cut arranged by row, and then I developed a massive case of craft fright.
For two years a box of neatly organized denim patches sat tucked away in a basement closet. For two years I struggled to find the courage to actually assemble the quilt. I realize that sounds silly, but I was so afraid of disappointing myself and the expectations I had set for this blue jean blanket.
Then one day over the summer, I just decided to go for it.
And I couldn't be happier with the results. This fleece lined denim quilt has been the best picnic, camping, and couch cuddling blanket ever.
The best part of all was discovering that perhaps I am not that much of a perfectionist after all. Yes, there are uneven stitches and the edges are slightly wonky, but you know what? In the end, those imperfections I was so worried about, really don't bother me at all. And the family memories we've made and are yet to make with this blanket are absolutely perfect :)
